Restoring the Little Things that Run the World
Wednesday, June 3, 7:00 pm
Enjoy amazing photos of caterpillars, birds and more while learning fascinating facts. How many caterpillars does it take to raise a nest of chickadees? What percent of native plants are needed to sustain insects and birds? Which native plants are the most ecologically productive, keystone species? We view a compelling and fast-paced video (59 min. but it seems shorter!) of Doug Tallamy, Professor of Entomology at University of Delaware and author of the new book, Nature’s Best Hope, speaking on the “little things that run the world.” Tallamy discusses simple steps that each of us can – and must – take to reverse declining biodiversity and explains why we, ourselves, are nature’s best hope.
After the video I’ll give a brief virtual tour of the UUCPA garden to tempt you to come for a personal tour, and we can have a discussion.
The UUCPA garden is on the Going Native Garden Tour which was virtual this year: https://gngt.org/GNGT/
